Er we might have to agree to disagree on fraud vs omission here. Since we are talking and its obvious we are living in different countries. Don't have we have a HR person or an attorney here who is a viewer who can answer this? @avondale16 I think I know how it works in SK. And have a fairly good understanding including how to access legal Acts in the court system. However how it works in a drama is a different thing. I have friends who work in SK.

 

I am in Australia by the way. We have people who change careers here all the time. So inexperienced people have applied for jobs they are not qualified for and just work. However @enigmatic_zephy you seem to believe really strongly on this subject so. I am happy to read it. Since we have to do a cover letter when it comes to job application its a bit hard to hide relevant work experience. As we have to address the job criterias. Besides we all need post grad qualification on top of it.

 

The reason why I say this on soompi is that I am about to volunteer at my kids school canteen today. We have to volunteer for so much stuff in schools here. Just to chop vegetables and fruits. And apparently cook some stuff and I kept quiet about my work and not commenting on my cooking skills. People omit information when its necessary. And for Danyi's it was financial survival. She needed the money.

 

For drama purposes since there are no parents here, I guess the writers need to introduce some sort of crisis for ep 13-15. Since we seem to be on a drama plot formula. So whether Danyi retains her job or not it will depend on the writer.

 

I am moving on from this topic and on going onto ep 12.

 

If you want to talk about things bugging me. And its not fraud or omission; its Kang Danyi clothes. She is on minimum wages. And in other dramas the female lead in the basic wage job is on the rooftop apartment. With cheap clothing. Look at Danyi. Even if she saved on accommodation and utilities she still has her daughter in the Philippines boarding school.

 

The writer doesn't even bother letting her make phones to her daughter now. Lets say EH ends up with her. There won't be any hanky panky time when there is a teenager at home. She will be busy ferrying her to a hagwon or music lessons. Or supervising homework. Or working overtime at work. Whoever heard of a marketing team person who leaves work on time in Korea? And not forced to go drinking after.

 

So HAH to the romance. Or basic wage job.

@ck1Oz  I think EH bought her clothes because he said what she was wearing to work was too dowdy. And beat the ex into giving her child support and alimony. Maybe she's living rent free with EH, too. Dunno. Weird though she's not calling her kid. Failure of the writing. Why introduce a child character and drop them completely. And Danyi with bandaids in her purse seems like a nurturing maternal woman. It's odd.

Let’s get past the topic of DY’s Daughter. I guess the story focus on the couple and the office. I believe off screen, DY definitely will give her Daughter a call and further more, in this episode, we did saw that she marked her calendar to pay a gift for EH and her Daughter on her payday. She does remember but the writer thinks there’s no point to include a 15 seconds phone call. Ultimately I don’t think DY will tell her daughter about the pressure and stress she face at work. 

 

I do do believe that DY will introduce EH to her Daughter and they might have met each other already. I’m totally in for the writer to put more screen time with EH and DY. They known each other for more than twenty years and finally they got to reciprocate their feelings. This is hard to come by.

 

im all ready for the rest of the episode with more sweet stuff. 

 

Only one thing I don’t understand about the director GO. Over qualified is a good thing rather than under qualified. Why make a big fuss out of it..........

Thank you writer-nim for the fan service in episodes 11 and 12! @moomooz I agree with you on the screen time of the daughter. This is only a 16-hour drama so they get selective on the scenes they include in every episode, even if it's important in the whole arc but may not be needed in a particular episode. I am enjoying the drama too much and I have faith in writer-nim and PD-nim that I don't want to question anything.

 

My hopes in the final 4 episodes:

1. Backstory of the book April 23, and what is it all about. (Just throwing out here one backstory I thought of - what if KDJ is CEH's stepfather and JS is the real son which KDJ knew of but never met and April 23 Book is his "love letter" to JS, and CEH knows about KDJ having a son, but doesn't know who, and kept it as a secret, wild!)

2. KDY "I LOVE YOU" confession. Can you imagine what kind of reaction we will get from CEH when that finally happens? Or how red he will get?

3. More SJ and HR interactions, please! Though it seems like HR will get another rejection (friendship rejection this time) but knowing her, she will not take NO for an answer.

4. Ms Go to finally acknowledge that she needs friends like Ms Seo and KDY in her life. You can see in Ms Go's demeanor that she's very torn in terminating KDY's contract because she recognizes her accomplishments.

Episode 13 preview

 

 

EH: She had studied more diligently than anyone, she’s talented, and she works more passionately than anyone!
DY: Give me an idea.
EH: You want me to give you this valuable thing for free?
(DY gives EH a peck on the cheek)
EH: That’s a little insufficient.
DY: Just give me some ideas.
EH: Noona, could I sleep here…?
DY: Why is he asking something like that?
EH: Is that you, noona?! I am ready at any time!
SJ: I don’t need your apology. Just don’t appear in front of me anymore.
SJ: Please, let’s just be cool, and only talk about work!
DY: You’re here. Next to me. I only need you.

 

 

Version of the preview from the end of the episode. It has one extra scene with EH questioning himself over KBJ:


EH: She had studied more diligently than anyone, she’s talented, and she works more passionately than anyone!
DY: Give me an idea.
EH: You want me to give you this valuable thing for free?
(DY gives EH a peck on the cheek)
EH: That’s a little insufficient.
DY: Just give me some ideas.
EH: Noona, could I sleep here…?
DY: Why is he asking something like that?
EH: Is that you, noona?! I am ready at any time!
SJ: I don’t need your apology. Just don’t appear in front of me anymore.
SJ: Please, let’s just be cool, and only talk about work!
EH: Whether I did the right thing, that’s what I don’t know. Whether disappearing from the world like this is the right thing. Whether keeping that promise was the right thing.
DY: You’re here. Next to me. I only need you.

So I think that @ihyw pointed this out already, but EH bought DY work a bunch of work clothes when she first started working because her own clothes were too dowdy. She is also living with EH rent free, and pretty much board free as well since EH does the shopping. At this point, she has no expenses other than her daughter at the boarding school in the Philippines, and EH threatened DY's ex to get him to pay child support.

 

As for DY and EH's relationship when DY's daughter is around, I'm sure there won't be any hanky panky, but her daughter wasn't coming home to visit that often anyway, and as long as DY and her ex can afford to do so, the daughter will probably stay at the boarding school until she applies for university. So, I'm sure DY and EH can restrain themselves when DY's daughter comes home for any vacations. Plus, we don't actually get to see every moment of DY's day. I assume that she's still communicating with her daughter, but it happens away from the camera since it's not really relevant to the story we're watching. Only the fact that DY has a daughter that she has to support is really relevant to the drama that we're watching.

 

As for DY basically living off EH, I think it points to how comfortable they are with each other already that they do so without thinking of it as DY is "living off" EH. The scene where they eat ddeokbbokki was interesting in how much they seemed like a couple as EH pulls out his wallet, and let's DY grab the money from it. I know that it's because they didn't want to stop holding hands, but it also felt as if there was a certain naturalness and familiarity to DY getting money from EH's wallet. There was no shyness or reticence about it at all.

Some epilogue text translations from the end of ep 12.

 

EH in epilogue 1 text:
Actually, I had wanted to use fancier methods.  
Making the confession that I had held back for so long, as well as asking her out for the first date.
However, Kang Dan Yi always lightens my expectations.
So even just saying that we should eat a meal outside
becomes an event that makes me flutter.

me: What he’s trying to say is that he imagines these grand gestures, but when he faces DY, he can’t focus on those, and he ultimately ends up just blurting out something simple because he’s so nervous about it. It’s a cute sentiment.

 

DY in epilogue 2 text:
How was I able to hold hands with Eun Ho for all this time?
How was I able to walk shoulder to shoulder with Eun Ho, and laugh as if it was nothing?
When even just meeting glances makes me shiver like this.
When I like him so much that it’s hard to even take a breath.

 

DY and EH in epilogue 3 text:
“Because you’re beside me, it’s a relief!”
Between us, are there any words that are more passionate than that?
In the time that has already passed, and in this time now,
And in the time that is left to live,
The fact that we are going to be by each others sides.
That fact makes me live in constant fluttering.

 

DY in epilogue 4 text:
That there is someone who will always call my name.
That there is someone who when I call out his name will turn around and smile at me.
That simple and plain thing is actually a difficult thing to have, I know that well.
That such a miraculous thing is next to me is fantastic.

 

From the last epilogue text when they’re holding hands:
That night, we kept holding hands and walking.
We shared a goldfish bun with one hand even though it was very uncomfortable.
As if we had only just found the puzzle piece that we had been looking for so long,
As if we had never been apart from the beginning and were one body.
It was an ordinary, and yet romantic, night.

 

 

I do rather like that the epilogue texts give us some insight into how the characters are thinking in those moments. It gives additional sweetness to DY and EH's romance as well.

Its not that i believe strongly on this, i just don't like people making Ko a scapegoat for everything. She is not  a bad character. No one in this drama is. She stands for something in the drama which is often overlooked and plastered with a lot of namecalling.

 

And on the other bit, you scared me.. so you mean jobs are scarce in Australia

 

On resume, i don't get the logic. "Over fitment" is a real thing. Many companies do a pscyhological tests too/ leadership tests and have a range of score that they target, above or below once gets rejected.

So, I don't see how in legal parlance, this can ever be construed as "right". you can always highlight why you are fit for the job including cover letter as you said. But, this is nothing less than hiding true facts.

Guys I am so glad you have brought up DY clothes! 

When she was changing for her date outfits, I was completely gobsmacked at what she had in her wardrobe! 

Someone call the fashion police because DY should be arrested for some of these articles of clothing she has!

 

I get this outfit for staying at home. It's cute and looks super comfy!

But for a date WHY ON EARTH WOULD SHE EVEN FATHOM WEARING THIS?

Is this what you call high fashion? God bless! NEXT!

YDLOO0O.png

 

Her actual date outfit! The top and bottom DON'T EVEN MATCH!

Spoiler

I think the only outfit that I loved from her was when there was a flashback of EH and DY at the bar!

Can we get KYS to help our girl out, because I love her outfits! It exudes elegance and beauty! 

 

Also on a side note:

I don't think it's wrong to omit your qualifications for a job. I'm pretty sure a resume is job specific - it should contain all the details necessary to get the job. And if DY position only requires a high school graduate qualification, then is it wrong for DY to omit her university degrees and marketing experience?

No. I'm pretty sure some companies would not hire people they deemed overqualified because they believe someone who has achieved a high level of qualification in a field should be working in that position, rather than a low level position that differs from their degree.

I have to give a monent. Reflect. Recover. From that god- awful what the heck trenchcoat he almost wore for the date. What was THAT? 

 

His final ensemble is much nicer. 

 

@enigmatic_zephy I better end this topic? Jobs are not scarce in Australia. Although there is a certain unemployment rate. However certain jobs are scarce in my state since I am not in Victoria or NSW where the population is larger. I have a friend who did a double degree but had to do a 3rd in accountancy to get a job to stay in the state. There are a lot of Korean migrants here who cannot find work in their chosen profession/degree when they migrated. Also this friend is probably too qualified for the jobs available?  I have a cousin who has an American MBA when she migrated but was working in a bank call centre. And my field is specialised anyway so we tend to know everyone. So it depends on what kind of job you're talking about.

 

Talking about CEH's job or his field I wonder how well paid it is. I keep looking at his house. Is that his whole house? That big building? Even SJ has a  room apartment as a graphic designer. As far as I know graphic designing is not like the best paid job.

 

I still like this drama a lot don't mistake  my comments. I like the flow and I like all the books. 

 

I just can't work out if Bong and Seo are being set up to be together or not. And the CEO with So or not. I don't need them to be together its just that the writer is setting them up.

 

However Song Haerin has and continues to be so totally likeable. The last time I like a 2nd lead female that much was in Protect the boss. I still occasionally watch her scenes whenever I want so fuzzy moments.

 

Talking about the ttteokbukki here. The one he cooked at home. I know everyone just passed over the moment however I remembered being impressed by how professionally glazed it looked. It was a deep vermilion colour. Not soggy looking and just so glazed looking, glistening madly. Each individual rice cyclinder looking separated. Wow. Who has ever seen a tteokbukki looking like that? Guess you guys guessed by now I am a foodie. Ane totally into gourmet food and nice presentation.

5 Moments When Lee Jong Suk Made Viewers Heart Flutter With Hilarious Cute Scenes In “Romance Is A Bonus Book”

MARCH 4, 2019

 

 

Who would believe that “Romance is a Bonus Book” is the first romantic-comedy of Lee Jong Suk? Hard to believe it as the actor is hilarious and this drama genre suits him perfectly.

Lee Jong Suk and Lee Na Young have great chemistry. Lee JongSuk (as Cha EunHo) has a one-sided love for Lee NaYoung (as Kang DanYi) since a long time. As their relationship evolves, Lee JongSuk has many hilarious and cute scenes where his feelings for the girl can be felt. Here is a selection of them in not a particular order.

Be aware of spoilers. Let us know in the comments what is the funniest and cutest scene of Lee Jong Suk in the drama for you.

 

1- Comedy Scene

From the first episodes, Lee JongSuk and the publishing company employees made viewers laugh. The drama opened with their hilarious swag.

2- Jealous Scene

Hard to choose only one scene when it comes to Lee Jong Suk and his jealousy.

In this scene, Wi HaJoon (as Ji Seo Joon) has a crush for Lee Na Young when she is out to meet him, Lee JongSuk is relieving his anger on the doll she received from the second male lead.

Wow.. i am assuming you mean reputed colleges and thereby not finding a job with those degrees is a bummer..

I wonder what certain unemployment rate is - every country has one.. so i assume you mean it is non alarming..

I have to say that Ms. Go irritates me. Although she heard from her acquaintance that KDY was struggling to find a job after remaining for many years as housewife and CEH even told her the same, she suspects from KDY  an ulterior motive. She heard from KDY herself what happened to her marriage. Yet Ms. Go shows no empathy. No wonder that she is not able to have true friends, she lacks compassion. She is all about credentials... how good she is at her job. Notice that she bragged with her fake friends about her wealth and career... because she didn't want to appear inferior to them. She acts exactly like the acquaintance from that other company. Indeed, it looks to me like she feels threatened by KDY. When Ms. Go used the idea that was similar to KDY's work, she could have mentioned that KDY had a similar idea to the others. She never did and she didn't compliment KDY. On the other hand, she tried to put KDY in her place, let her know what was her real job... it was as if she wanted to tell her: don't dream too high!

Honestly, Go is not different from KDY: she is also a liar... telling her ex-fiance that she was married! I hope, the writer won't put her with the CEO together. I want her to learn her lesson at some point too. So far, she hasn't.

@xXMzSmilesXxHahaha... I was thinking exactly that about her date outfit. I thought what she was wearing before was nicer than what she changed into!

 

As regards this issue of qualification omission — it’s not unethical to do so. She underdeclared but she also accepted a correspondingly lower pay for it. There is also nothing illegal about it. It is not a realm covered under the law since she did not commit fraud, which would be if she falsified a qualification she actually didn’t have. She *is* a high school graduate. However, organisation to organisation, they will have to decide if this is what they want in an employee. I actually think if the CEO was told of the circumstances, he would keep her. As Eun-Ho pointed out, Dan-I has not been incompetent in her work. I feel it’s simly Ms Go who is being small-minded. If that other recruiter is her Friend, it is likely they share the same “value”, that if as women they have worked hard to come into their career the “hard way”,  then Dan-I entering the company in what appears to be in the hopes of landing a marketing job instead does not seem “fair” in their books. And I guess that’s the issue — if she had kept to her work, that would have been fine. But it does look like she was trying to land a marketing job in a roundabout manner. It’s really whether the company CEO sees the value in her. But he’s clearly been bypassed.

@bebebisous33 Definitely agree that Mrs Go/KYS was pretty annoying in this episode. I have been really liking Mrs Go because of the potential of goodness I see in her. However, her work ethics are stern and I felt that she thought DY was trying to get into the marketing position through the task support role. She's a walking hypocrite who really needs to let down her guard down more.

And even though you don't want her and the CEO to hook up; the scenes between them have suggested they will form a couple. Because the CEO has everything she desires - a good man who understands her passion for her career and children!

 

@gilaswan  I actually disagree with you on the part about "But it does look like she was trying to land a marketing job in a roundabout manner." In fact I think she chose to role to have some sort of footing back into the working force. And her involvement with the marketing aspects of the company is completely by her own desire to help her co-workers and learn more on the job. Everyone except Mrs Go seems to be aiding growth in her understanding of the publishing field and the current marketing strategies.

I don't think she has a specific ulterior motive to land a marketing job at the publishing firm. Also I don't think the CEO would directly give her a marketing job due to the conversation between him and EH at the restaurant. He made it clear that if employees wish to move into certain roles, they need to apply for it and prove their own capabilities, which I actually deem fair.

@xXMzSmilesXx I am well aware that the writer is putting Ms. Go with the CEO but I don't like it very much. It would be great if this "couple" has more an open ending. In real life, some remain single forever... Not everyone ends up with a partner. Just like manager Seo doesn't return to her ex-husband. I hope, it doesn't change. It was really upsetting that he wanted his wife back due to their son. He never replied to his ex-wife's question: "Do you love me, Ji Heong?" So when he overlooked this question ("this is not important"), it showed that he had indeed stopped loving her. He just wanted her back for their son's sake, for his own comfort... He had never understood her reason for the divorce. He only thought that she had acted out of anger. When he said that he would be a better husband, he was missing the point again in my opinion.

   

Honestly, I wished, Ms. Go would suffer much more. Yes, she is lonely but she does look down on others. She doesn't value human relationships, her whole world is focused on her work. She bragged in front of the CEO about her skills (how she was able to find a writer aso...), on the other hand she is not able to give compliments to others. I had defended her more before, even tried to assume that she wanted to push KDY into the right direction, however her conversation with CEH showed only stubbornness and narrow-mindedness.

I think the issue I have with Ms Ko is that she is self-righteous. For all the failings she’s had or experienced, there is no sense of true remorse, regret, or even hindsight lessons in life that have been learned. Each time, we only see or know of her imperfections when she is caught with her pants down, so to speak. She’s otherwise very guarded, but her guardedness is fueled by arrogance, a self-justification to herself that despite all, she has done no wrong, made no mistake. She can’t see the log in her own eye. And that is what is annoying about her.

 

And speaking of annoying characters, I have to admit I’m also getting annoyed with the way Kang Dani’s character is being written. If she is mature and motherly, that does not follow through in her interactions with Eunho. It’s like with him, there is no sense she is a mother, or that she struggles with being a divorcee while searching for her new self sans husband (unlike with Ms Seo). Her character is suddenly coming across as being very 2D - she’s either this or that and not more. The complexities that is her which was introduced early in the show seem to be no more. Like some of you have mentioned - where’s that daughter? Where’s that fighting spirit (looks like she’s going to lose that job without trying hard to save it)? And what is she really bringing into the relationship with Eunho? She so very suddenly gave up on Ji Seojun. And so suddenly thought of the outing with Eunho as a date. There’s a lot of disconnect going on for me. I’m finding the development of the other supporting characters a lot more thought through than that of Kang Dani.
